As of Monday, June 29, Kentucky has moved into the next phase in the 'Healthy at Work' reopen initiative. This means that sports venues can allow fans in with 50% capacity, and many other requirements and guidelines will need to be followed. Ellis Park has been preparing for their first live racing event with COVID-19 training for staff, marking areas for social distancing, facial masks, temperature checks and weekly electrostatic sprayer sanitizing, among other things.

The number one priority is the guest's safety, so all Ellis Park Employees have been tested for COVID-19. Anyone testing positive will be quarantined. Employees are also required to wear face masks and gloves for their entire shift. You'll find extra sanitation stations and  Personal Protection Equipment will be available for guests.

Even though spectators will be allowed in to the races, this season things are a lot different. The grandstands, Trackside Viewing, and Private Boxes are not available at this time.
